Smoothly easygoing IPA lets juicy grapefruit tang and orange-peeled lemon zest crowd grassy herbal resin. Dry Simcoe-hopped wood tones contrast buttery English pale-malted (Optic) biscuit flouring in soft-toned setting.
On tap at Ambulance, bold collaboration with Manhattan’s Randolph Beer (and Brooklyn clam shack, Cape House) gives oyster-shelled salinity a deeply embittered black-malted dark chocolate, medium-roast coffee ruggedness and charred nuttiness above its oats-flaked raw molasses bottom. Serve to robust bitter-tongued stout lovers.
On tap at Ambulance, mildly dry Huell Melon hops provide limey honeydew-waxed melon rind tartness crowded by spritzy lemon-oiled acidity, lightly soured grapefruit spurt and splashy lacquered wood polishing. Tertiary mandarin orange, peach and strawberry illusions flutter. Somewhat unique IPA advertised as pizza accompaniment.
On tap at Ambulance, mild kettle-soured ‘wild ale’ brings soured blackberry and pomegranate musk to lightly pungent gose-like lemon limed salting. Tart cranberry pucker adds further souring while subtle sulfuric snip funks up acidulated barley-oats-rye malting.
On tap at Seven Lakes Station, juicy lemon-soured tangerine candy entry picks up gose-styled coriander salting and wildflower-honeyed acridity. Easygoing moderation may crossover to pale ale lovers with a sour side.
On tap at Ambulance, muskily dank-grained Czech pilsner stays pungent as maize-dried barley, oats and spelt increase sourdough malting above resinous herbal hops. In the recess, floral-spiced lemondrops appear.
